This area holds a high concentration of fine routes. The four main formations found here are Photographer's Peak, Aquarium Rock, Icehouse Rock, and the Great Wall. The first three are immediately next to the parking area, and the Great Wall is a short distance away.
Drive to Sylvan Lake and pay the entrance fee. These rocks are the prominent formations east of the lake and also the closest rock to the Sylvan Lake store. Drive past the main parking lot, then continue straight at the junction which drives around Sylvan Lake's east side. Park a short distance past this junction at a small pulloff on the left side of the road at the base of the rocks.
